At Treehouse Lodge, guests sleep in actual treehouses, not mere treehouses propped up on stilts in the midst of trees. To achieve this ambitious vision, we took every precaution to ensure the safety of both our guests and the trees. The main lodge, treehouses, cable bridges and stairs were engineered in the United States by a structural engineer. The treehouses are supported by connections to the tree, suspension from the branches above, and multiple steel cables to the ground. Annual inspections and adjustments are made to maintain the safety of the lodge.
Tree platforms and bridges are all built with wooden railings and, in some cases, steel cables. Bridges are equipped with foot and hand cables connected by vertical cable supports. Strong webbing is installed on the side walls of the bridges to ensure your comfort and safety. The main lodge and all treehouses are enclosed with mosquito mesh and, just to help you sleep a little better, an extra layer of mosquito mesh is placed over your bed and tucked underneath your mattress.
We invite you to come to the jungle and see animal life, but on your terms. All of your movement through the lodge will be on raised wooden platforms or cable bridges to keep you safe from the wildlife on the jungle floor. Any walking in the jungle will be done with an experienced guide.
At Treehouse Lodge, we bring in fresh, purified water for drinking and cooking to ensure the health of our guests. Most of the water used at Treehouse Lodge comes from the river. We have a 4-tank water purification system that provides water for showers, toilets, sinks, and cleaning. The first tank allows the sediment to settle. The second two tanks are for purification. The final tank sits atop a high tower for pressure. Additionally, every treehouse has it’s own purified water tank for showers, toilets, and sinks.
A safe, first-aid kit, fire extinguisher and walkie talkies to contact the main lodge are all provided. Food is stored in a refrigerator or freezer powered by the sun, backed up by a generator. Solar panels power all the electrical needs of the lodge from lighting and fans to refrigeration and communication. A generator is used only on overcast days as a back-up.
